Aeration and Thatch Removal
Have you ever seen children run through the grass, leaving mud tracks. The slippery consistency of the soil is caused by the high moisture content. Humidity and constant raining could cause the soil to become muddy. It is important to restore the soil moisture to allow proper nutrient and water absorption. Over watered soil could also risk drowning the roots and inviting growth of mold. Aeration would allow proper air circulation as the process includes making holes into the ground. When manually applying aeration with a pitchfork or rake, the holes are only created superficially. Our core aeration service includes creating multiple 6 inch deep holes. Using an aerator is the most efficient and effective method to aerating the soil. Thatch is dense soil that is covered with straws and debris. The straws block the soil from getting proper sunlight and affects the absorption of nutrients. The easiest way to remove thatch is through raking, however, when done incorrectly, it could leave the roots of the grass exposed. We recommend calling our professional Lawrence lawn care company for thatch removal so that we can give your lawn the best care possible while minimizing damages.
